ISHIJIMA (ACCUTRON/Resident): When the century was turning, he underwent baptism of the techno boom when he was 15, in summer, and started DJ as he was greatly influenced by Jeff Mills and Richie Hawtin. Since 2005, when he was in his 20’s, he had been doing DJ in clubs in Tokyo mainly, and had sessions
with many artists including Umek, Valentino Kanzyani, Speedy J, Aril Brihka, Extrawelt, Mathew Jonson, and GREEN VELVET. In 2016, he performed in an event of Ben Klock and Ame & Dixon. He also started a new project of collaborating techno with artists of Japanese traditional instruments. As he submitted a demo song to Akira Miyake, a producer of Hikari Utada, it was distributed in Europe, and had been ranked in top 10 of the club chart of Britain’s established music media, MUSIC WEEK, for as long as three weeks to surprise the club music world. While he pursued his own style of music, having been ranked in the charts of more than 20 clubs in Europe, as part of the generation that started using TRAKTOR, which is commonly used today, he perfected the style of building minimal music in real time by using effectors, and regarded as
one of the next generation DJs. In 2017, as Shibuya CONTACT celebrates its first anniversary, he has become a resident DJ of the techno party, ACCUTRON!
